“Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom” has smashed box office records in South Africa.

Since it opened on Thursday, the film has raked in 751,000 rands, which equates to roughly 80,900 Australian dollars.

Released by Videovision Entertainment (through United International Pictures), the film soared to number 1 at the box office and, according to Videovision, has set a new record for a non-holiday Thursday release.

The biographical film follows Nelson Mandela’s life, from childhood to presidency. Idris Elba stars as the peace icon alongside Naomie Harris, who plays Winnie Mandela.
